The heroes in orange need your help to boost its service

SO MANY have relied on them over the past month; people dressed in orange uniforms cleaning up the region following Cyclone Marcia.

The SES.

But for the work of the SES to continue more volunteers are needed.

Local SES controller for the Rockhampton and Livingstone regions Eddie Cowie said they were looking for around 30 more members.

"We are always looking for new members who are fit for duty, who enjoy hikes and physical activity," Mr Cowie said.

Alex McPhee from the Isaac SES said they now had only 68 members.

"Ideally we would like to have 160 members for a region the size of Isaac. With that many members we would be able to respond to requests for assistance and share the workload," Mr McPhee said.

Isaac SES has depots in Moranbah, Nebo, Clermont, Dysart, Middlemount, St Lawrence, Carmila and Green Hill.

For more information about joining the SES, contact the regional office on 4938 4999.
